Most widely held works by Andrew Bergman
Blazing saddles by Mel Brooks( Visual )

35 editions published between 1974 and 2014 in English and Italian and held by 2,191 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Never give a saga an even break! Blazing Saddles is an iconoclastic, not-politically-correct parody; one of the 1970s most successful and popular films. Every clichéd element from every Western ever made is turned upside down and inside out, while retaining all the familiar caricatures--eh, characters--of the genre: a dance-hall girl, a gunslinger, a sheriff, and a town full of pure folk. Mel Brooks redefined film comedy, and proved that even sophomoric, scatological humor could be used to ridicule prejudice, injustice, and apathy

Dentist Sheldon Kornpett is a respectable man. He has a daughter who is about to marry the son of a very suspicious character, Vince Ricardo. Nonetheless, Vince calls on Sheldon and convinces him to go with him on a series of adventures, claiming all the while that he is a CIA agent, and that what he is doing is in national interest. Sheldon follows Vince to a South American country ruled by a very odd man, General Garcia, who talks to his hand. It seems that the dictator is involved in a scheme to counterfeit and undermine U.S. currency

4 editions published in 1994 in English and held by 277 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Sleepless Nights is the first major novel by Andrew Bergman - screenwriter, director, and a talented and powerful new voice in contemporary fiction. Sleepless Nights is a novel about a Jewish family, the parents of which have survived the Holocaust, and the dark currents of incest among them. As in Nabokov's Lolita, there is in Andrew Bergman's novel an underlying hunger for love and acceptance that speaks not only for this family, whose nights are too often sleepless, but perhaps for many so-called normal families as well. And, remarkably, at the end, there is the promise of nights free of past demons and open to a future never dreamed of
